All fans of the River Cats can enjoy their park for one unique reason. It isn’t the horseshoe shaped stands that smartly seat the people facing the diamond with excellent viewing angles. Nor is it that the place is intoxicating with the rich aroma of an open air barbeque pit near the leftfield stands. Nor is it that every modern amenity is immaculate and glossy at all times—the clean restrooms, the huge concourse or the plush skyboxes.

Nope. Its best feature for the fan is its design against the sun. After the first inning of a night game, virtually every seat in the house sits in the shade. (With the first pitch, only a few rightfield sections are in direct light).

Don’t think that’s a big deal? Then try your own patience in forking out good dough to bake in a scorching California glare until the fourth inning when nature subsides. Moreover, try it with toddlers in tow.

Made in the shade is what sets Raley Park apart as a top summer sports theatre. Buy any seat you want in confidence, knowing your eyes won’t be squinting to the see the action and the peace you’ll enjoy when the kids’ ice cream cones last longer.
